Silhouette Posted May 11, 2022 at 10:28 PM Share Posted May 11, 2022 at 10:28 PM I have included an AP wire article below with a detailed summary, but in short the Firearms Policy Coalition sued CA over its ban on sales of semiautomatic weapons to citizens under 21. A panel in the 9th circuit voted 2 to 1 that this age-based ban was unconstitutional. This case may be appealed en banc. If the case stands, it may be influential (but not binding) on the 7th circuit. In particular, I could see this case being relevant to questions on whether the second amendment demands CCLs be issued at age 18 in Illinois (assuming that SCOTUS finds that the plain language of the second amendment involves bearing arms). It may also have bearing on handgun sales from FFLs to citizens under 21 if such a case arises again. https://www.firearmspolicy.org/jones https://www.usnews.com/news/politics/articles/2022-05-11/court-californias-under-21-gun-sales-ban-unconstitutional Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
